I'm a Seattle-based CH traveling to the UK & Ireland for a three week honeymoon in May. We've done our research and scoured the boards. Do our plans make sense? Are we overlooking a fine experience or missing an opportunity? Also, we'd love to have lunch recommendations -- we'll be on the road a lot so it was hard to make plans.
